More revisionist horse-puckey. Plenty of links in here to educate yourself about the reaction to Obama's election. http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/pres…
Please. Libtards are all Shtoorm, nein Drang.
I would gladly donate time and money to any effort to stop this shortsighted plan.
Funny how the past 2 elections there wasn't anything written from those that voted and lost those elections to Obama. "WE" that voted against him didn't take to the streets to burn down businesses nor did we mail it in for work or school, "WE" just went on with life because the American people had voted and he won. Now after 8 years of Socialism and it not working the American people have once again gone in different direction with Trump. Not saying I agree with everything he's doing but give him a chance to pull the Country up to where "WE ALL" have a chance at a better life. But it's articles like these many weeks later that continue to stir the pot and not let people get on with their lives.
Whatever. The left will always see events the way they want to see them - regardless of the facts.
Said the anonymous asshat from England who obviously didn't read the story.
SOSDD from the bleeding hearted, empty headed liberals of the Memphis Flyer. I wish they had this much conviction and passion for the U.S. Citizens and legal residents who are harmed by illegal immigration. Now that would be a story worth covering. But that would also require much more journalistic integrity than this little rag of a paper has ever been able to muster.
Instead, the Flyer keeps repeating the same tired, and at best, half-true sob stories of how these wonderful, innocent, for all practical purposes -- angels on earth -- are being persecuted by our wicked politicians and immigration laws. Utter rubbish!!!
There is never any discussion of personal responsibility for this immoral and illegal activity which harms truly innocent people. There are only vague references to parents who allegedly brought their children kicking and screaming into this country. Where are the parents? Surely, someone should be held responsible.
Even the children who may have been brought here illegally but are now adults should be held responsible for their own actions at a certain point. Other than trying to hide behind equally illegal Executive Orders, what have these children who are now adults done to try to get legal?? The answer is usually nothing.
What these amnesty for illegals puff pieces never get around to mentioning is that what they really want -- what they are really advocating for -- is a free ticket for people who don't deserve it.
Actually, Shep, your point is better made by saying "people should only feel the way I feel about things. Other points of view are invalid because they're not like mine."
The scary part of a Trump presidency is not a Republican vs. Democrat issue. Fear comes in to play because of the racist/xenophobic/sexist things he has done and said. Fear comes in because of his quick (negative) reactions/hot temper. Fear comes in when he surrounds himself with politicians that have a track record of working against women's rights/immigrants' rights/LGBTQ+ rights. There are plenty of things to fear. Hopefully, these fears will be all for naught... But to dismiss the feelings of anyone who was marginalized by Trump's campaign? Well, that's just plain rude.
The comment "A white man told you to chill, so you best chill." makes my point: Everything doesn't have to be seen through the prisim of racism. I am speakiing as human being, as a American.
A white man told you to chill, so you best chill.
Not only is that a wonderful story, but an awesome picture as well.
sturm und drang. If'n you're going Germanic, go Germanic all the way my friend.
Only Nixon could go to China, and apparently only Trump can propose running deficits that would make the GOP shit its pants if a Democrat did it. IOKIYAR.
Agree with Bruce's column, but one part rubbed me the wrong way.
"....try to print the truth from our perspective."
Here is my problem with this. The TRUTH does not have a perspective. The TRUTH is the TRUTH. How we have gotten to some of these problems is people want to see the TRUTH from their perspective, through their lens, through their filter. The problem is that it is not the TRUTH anymore then.
The TRUTH is something that should slap you upside your head sometimes and then you need to adjust before it slaps you upside your head again.
I think that the Flyer and other media outlets do a better job of putting a spotlight on the TRUTH, but please...pretty please, with sugar on top....don't think you need to have a perspective on the TRUTH, just show it as it is...in all its glory and ugliness.
As we all are, Memphomania...as we all are...totally and unequivocally screwed. If this country survives the next four years intact, I will be amazed.
Buyers' remorse is already setting in..
It amazes me how all the people in this article have transposed their paranoia to President-Elect Trump. Yes, he said Muslim immigration should be stopped until we can vet them properly. He DID NOT SAY register every Muslim. Trump DID SAY he wanted to deport the "criminal" illegal aliens...and he has already stated that a pathway to citizenship for other illegals is the best way forward. I'm not sure what African Americans don't like about Trump's - except for that he isn't black. He has been very clear about wanting to focus on the inner city jobs, crime an education and he specifically courted - and won - more black votes than any other Repiblican in history. People need to calm down. Trump isn't a "normal" hard right Republican. In fact, many people within the party aren't sure he isn't an independant. He has had a lot of Democrats visiting in Trump Tower and has already appointed 2 Democrats. Chill folks....
After about a year of President PG, his supporters are going to need safe spaces. They are screwed. LOL.
Trump doesn't care about Yiddish labels, but he does care about money. Living in NYC, I suspect he has had ample time to assess where his support should be placed, in order to receive the largest blessings from Mammon. Inasmuch as the Democrats are trying as hard as they can to alienate average fly-over state voters, he will say whatever he thinks is propitious in order to garner those unloved voters' support. He hasn't made it to his current position in life by not recognizing a possible customer when he sees one. Does that make him their friend? If no one else is listening to them, then yes it does.
